Summer Term 5 Hawthorn Class newsletter

Our English work this term will be based on a book called Floodlands by Marcus Sedgwick, which is about Global warming. We will be writing persuasively, writing arguments, letter writing and of course writing stories. We will continue to revise grammar and spellings. In preparation for SATs we will be undertaking comprehension tests regularly


In maths we will be working on co-ordinates and transformations as well as angles and measures. After that we will be revising the entire maths curriculum ready for SATs as well as having fun! Year 5s will be revising too.

Our topic this term will be the Mayas and then looking at maps and our local environment. The Mayas link in with our work on Rainforests. For our local work we will be out and about mapping the local community as well as surveys and learning how to read O.S maps

Other important information:-

SATs (Year 6s) – These are from 14th to 17th May. Your child MUST be in school on these days. To try to make the week as relaxed as possible, we will provide breakfast on those days and there will also be a picnic on the Thursday afternoon. Details to follow.

In SATs week, year 5s will be taught either in other classes or as a unit. They will also have an assessment week this term.

Secondary transition

I know that for most of our year 6 children this is in the week beginning 9th of July. If your child has a different date please let me know as we are trying to plan the play etc!

PE – Wednesdays and Friday

Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit and a coat to walk to the Village Hall or they will miss their lesson and work in another class.

Homework – Maths homework will be given on a Monday or Tuesday, to be in the following week. Similarly, English will be given on a Thursday and collected in the next week.
